Profile
Earthstar was an electronic music group originally from Utica, New York, the brainchild of keyboardist/synthesist Craig Wuest, who worked with local guitarist Dennis Rea and others in the early versions of the band. After the release of the first album, Salterbarty Tales, Earthstar was encouraged by Klaus Schulze to relocate to Germany, where they were signed by Sky Records. Schulze produced their second and most successful album, French Skyline. Earthstar is notable as the only American band who participated in Germany's Kosmische Musik/electronic music scene while still at its height.
